Heck, at the price these are selling for, pick one up in each color. I had a blue one, now I have a green one too. Red seems to be angry, so I probably won't buy a red one. Seems to be good quality, haven't had one of these fender cables go kaputz on me yet, and there is no obvious tone quality issues with these cables, so I'll say that they are good quality, especially at bedroom and basement volume levels. Haven't gigged with this cable yet. But usually I go wireless at gigs. Yeah, go ahead, buy one.

This is without a doubt a quality guitar cable. However, it is advertised as being "surf green" (I know that error comes from Fender, and not Musician's Friend), but it's definitely more of a Sherwood green. On my computer monitor it looked way too dark to be surf green when I was ordering, but I thought perhaps my monitor was just off or it was a bad photo. I mean why is callled surf green when it's not? I just want to warn others who are looking for a similar aesthetic as me. It's a good quality cable, that will last a long time, and it arrived pretty fast, it's just not the surf green cable that I'm looking for.

Disappointing Cable

By XYZ

from San Diego, CA

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Fender California Instrument Cable:

I was looking for a braided cloth cable and this one is cloth covered in plastic. It is basically like having a garden hose attached to your guitar. 1/4 ends seem rather cheap.

            Comments about Fender California Instrument Cable:

            The plugs on the "California" series are apparently not high quality chrome - they are oxidizing on my cables. Also, I bought two different "California" cables (different lengths) and one of them shorted out (stopped working) after a few months. The plastic covering also gets a sticky feel over a long period of time. These are disappointing for a Fender-branded product. I got mine several years ago, so maybe they improved the product since then. I hope so. The ad says these have a lifetime guarantee. I'll have to send the broken one back. But I'm sure I didn't keep the receipt for a cable...

              I bought a 15' cord and have had no issues over the past 8 months of practicing twice a week and playing shows with my band. This includes getting stepped and stomped on, and mistakenly shut in cases numerous times a week. Nothing spectacular, but it is a cool looking cable that works great and has held up to a heavy work load.

                I bought these as backup just in case beer spills, guys in golf cleats, etc. took out my regular cables. They work just fine and the color is distinctive enough to keep them from getting confused with house cables when we're playing open mics. Haven't used them long enough to know how durable they are, but the price was good and I'm not noticing any additional noise.

                            Bought the cord as a second cord for my pedal. Very impressed with the sound quality.

                                Works okay but is stiff and not flexible.

                                  I have always had good luck with Fender cords. This is the first time I have tried the colored ones and so far, so good. The only thing that is slightly bothersome is the plastic sticky feel but, the cord itself seems very well made and should hold up for a long time.
